We’re not really sure where to begin. This was a musical wedding celebration like absolutely no other. On one hand, you’ve got the artist formerly known as Daniela Sloan (aka Daja) who is just a monster of a musical soul. On the other, you’ve got Mr. Joe who is just a sweet cool cat of a gentleman. Then you’ve got a cabaret club in downtown Chicago with a blackjack table, amazing friends & family & past clients, a lacy wedding dress with pant legs, the best food truck tacos we’ve ever had, a brown bear, and a kick ass rock band from Madison, Wisconsin. These lovebirds have really raised the bar for what a wedding celebration should be. The Sloansky crew really knows how to party.
But no, really, you absolutely need to listen to Daniela’s spectacular sound. She’s being doing this a long time and it comes from a real place, and it shows — think the soul of Amy Winehouse, spunk of Ani DiFranco, quirkiness of Regina Spector, and the pop sensibility of Sara Bareilles to get you in the ballpark. It was just amazing seeing a bride take the stage and putting it all out there. Definitely scroll down a bit and check out the photos from her set, too.
